Laura Bush Stepford Wife

Were you won over by Laura? It was nice, of course, to think she might be pro-choice, or have more enlightened views on education, but if any of that were true, it's been obvious for quite a while that her husband doesn't consult her for guidance. Lately Laura Bush has been used for President [sic] George Bush and his political advisors to justify his opposition to stem cell research.
